    THE COOLANT OUTLET IS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE RADIATIOR, NOT THE ARROW PLACE. AS FOR THE WHITE SMOKE, I THINK YOU NEED AN OIL CHANGE.GUD LUK!

    I think that screw is that of the engine head cover. White smoke is bad news. Whatever the cause for it, damage is already done and u need overhauling to sort it out.

    thing doesnt get worse by itself, i need some info to guess what went wrong. e.g. Are you running the car on petrol/CNG, do u notice this thing all day or just when engine hasn't attained its opt. temp, combustion and air/fuel mix, type of oil, type of fuel used etc. One last question is, if u were not using the coolant then was the level of water enough in radiator, as i dont think that without coolant car would smoke.
    regarding that hole, it is to fix the engine cover, nothing else. [I don't own any Honda ].

    this is screw only for the top cover. Can you find any leakage of Engine Oil from that hole. It have nothing to do with smoke. Is the smoke is Black or Blue. If it is black then you need a tuning and Engine tap adjustment.

    OKKKKKKKKKK. M SORRY I MISSED THAT PART. NO WONDER I FAIL SO MUCH IN SCHOOL. ANYWAYS, THERE IS A SCREW AT THE BOTTOM OF THE RADIATOR, TOWARDS THE RIGHT SIDE. THAT MUST BE MISSING. IT'S DIFFICULT TO SEE, YOU HAVE TO MOVE YOUR HAND ABOUT THERE. IF YOU'RE IN ISB, COME TO ME, I'LL LOOK FOR IT.

    This is an answer to the question asked whether there was a bolt missing were the arrow is pointing in the pic.
    No, there was no bolt of any sort in that place. Certain models come with certian features in only certain countries not all. So the engine block is the same for all the countries since its manufactured from the same factory. and hence you have the missing bolt, coz the feature is not available in pakistan models.

    As for the smoke and missing coolant, putting two togather, I think you have a blown head gasket, and get it check ASAP. Or you will damage more things on your car, like engine cease and etc.....!

    One more thing, check your oil dip stick to see if you find any traces of water, like rainbow coloring or milky liquid. These are signs of a blown head gasket. which allows coolant and oil to mix due to the leak in the head. I pointing you in this direction coz you said you have missing coolant. So check it up!

    hi
    thanx guys for your replys.there is nothing funny in the oil.besides the oil level has not decreased even.i think the tap needs adjustment.coz some times the smoke is bluish and some times whtite gryish smokes like a jet.so there is no screw in the engine cover.i thought that there was the gasket leak due to the missing screw.i thought that the gasket and the cover were the same things.ill go for a tune up.wich coolant is recomended.any way thanx for the replies.

    when i bought my honda, i wento the mechanic myself and asked if some nut was missing from the place u have highlighted.He said its simply an extra place to earth a wire with the help of a nut.Talking about the white smoke,its nothing to do with coolant.If ur car is getting hot,(temp crossing half),then u can look into the coolant stuff.Your car engine might be weak(is it consuming oil?).
